N E X T
For an individual tooth, restorative choices are driven by many factors, but more than anything else, it is by the presence or absence of cracks and/or endodontic treatment, and the amount of remaining tooth structure. By incorporating Biomimetic Principles, with the use of composite resin and strategically laminated continuous UHMWPE fiber, we can create a new class of direct restoration that better manages tensile and Poisson’s forces, resists and deflects cracks and lessens the effects of polymerization shrinkage on remaining tooth structure. This session will demonstrate clinical applications of UHMWPE fiber lamination.
At the completion of the course, participants will be able to discuss:
Management of cracked and endo treated teeth
